(1960)
(A book in the African series)
A novel by

 
 
A sensuous immersion in the colour-drenched world of Ghana during the 1950's. Here, against an exotic African backdrop, the author works out her themes of self-betrayal, struggle and pride..finely tuned to the rhythmic nuances of speech, and unerring in its perception of the complex African reality..conjurs up the African atmosphere of conflicting cultural duality in terms that have universal application, in a work of universal appeal.
